Challenges with narrative

The Challenges of writing this personal narrative was remembering every single detail because this started when I was in the eighth grade. My biggest challenge though was finding a topic to write about that has truly effected my life that I was willing to talk about. I could have talked about my freshman year of high school or getting into East Carolina University but I have decided to entertain you with a little drama. It has been hard trying to tell this story without going too far into my familyís lives. I have found that telling the story instead of writing a paper is a much easier task to do. I have actually used this paper to help me vent and get out my anger towards my grandmother. I have never really been able to talk to anyone about it so I have found it really easy to tell the story and at the same time release my frustration. I have found that is it quit difficult to write about my experience without getting angry again. I have been trying to find a way to not hate her but there has always been something that triggers my anger again and again. I cannot seem to get over the fact that my own grandmother just dropped her family for some random guy that she met at her friendís funeral. I mean seriously who meets someone at a funeral. I do not seem to be able to get over that, probably because I used to see my grandmother every week and talk to her every day and now I only talk to her twice a year, on Christmas and my birthday, and they are ten days apart. I only see her once a year, if there is a special occasion or reason for her to come see us. As you can see I have found it difficult to not turn my paper into me venting and rambling on about how much I hate her or why I do not consider her my grandmother. But I will find away to restrain myself from venting because I know that is not what anyone is looking for in a paper.
